Well I am suppose to be making Taco Soup for dinner tonight BUT dh saw the recipe that I had made up with combining a few recipes that I had read for Taco Soup that he doesn't think it will taste that appetizing! LOL Most of the Taco Soup recipes that I read had Ranch salad dressing mix(dry) in it but I knew that none of my family would eat it with that so I decided to omit it from the recipe and just use taco seasoning as the majority of the "spice" in the soup.
Sooooo I am going to post it and see what everyone else thinks!
1lb. ground beef, browned and drained
1 can refried beans(I have a container of homemade refried beans in the freezer I was going to use.)
2 tbsp. taco seasoning (add more to taste if needed)
1 can Rotel tomatoes(diced tomatoes with green chilies)
1 can(290z) tomato sauce
1 can tomato soup
1 can corn
2 cups of dry rice(or 3 to 4 cups of leftover cooked rice)
water to rinse out cans and for the rice
Simmer in the crockpot for 4-6 hours just basically to get all the flavors combined.
Serve with tortilla chips and shredded cheese.
So does this sound good to you?? Do you think it is hearty enough to make a good dinner meal or should I think about doing it more for a lunch(which for us is our lighter meal of the day)?
